Agreed. G92 is still using a 65nm process while AMD has moved their GPU's to a 55 nm process. I do like NVIDIA's Hybrid SLI concept though. The idea of having a low end on-board GPU coupled with a high-end discrete card that would only kick in when it's processing power is needed appeals to my sense of efficient use of electrical power.
